I would like to make a drag track that resembles Need for Speed Underground. This would be built using cardboard and/or other materials but the main challenge is making it look realistic.
Length-wise, a 1:64 quarter mile would be almost 6 meters long (if I remember correctly), plus run-off area, and I don't have that much space. Also, based on NFS and Fast and Furious, cars should take about 10 seconds to complete the track.
Here is the question: what would be the best alternative to build such a track with the limited space I have? Maybe 4 to 5 meters tops. Should I use camera tricks and a smaller drop angle so cars still take 10 seconds over whatever track length I have?
Bonus question: in NFS Underground, drag tracks were just regular roads so they were not 100% straight. how do you guys feel about this?
Thanks a lot
